  1. Sleeping Trouble


    I was wondering if any one new of anything natural that helps you fall asleep, and improves the quality. I would like it to be natural, and able take it every night. Mark


  2. Everynight...eeehhhh most sleep aids will build tolerance. BUT X-Dream is worth it from what i hear, soon to order. Melatonin kind of sucks. Search it an you'll get plenty. I have a few past thread/posts of detail on it. sometimes i do 6mgs for fun at night casue i like nightmares. just search sleep and you should get plenty

  3. Valerian root I have tried but it takes about 5-6. Melatonin, it works but should be cycled on and off. There is phenibut, which worked pretty well for me, but gives a hangover in the morning.

  4. I'm not that impressed with xdream. I like powerfull i sleep great on it and you feel great when taking it.

    X-Dream is great but its better if you dose every other night at the most. At least for me anyway...

  6. X-dream did nothing for me... I tried doses between 1-4 with no effect. I use a combo of Melatonin, hops, valerian root and skullcap for nights I need help falling asleep.

  7. I'm not sure if it helps me fall asleep, but PowerFULL definitely improves my quality of sleep.

  8. get a script for ambien, stuff kicks butt.

  9. ZMA. It's cheap, it works, and it's good for you.

    Take it about 30 minutes before you want to fall asleep. You'll sleep like a baby. No grogginess the next morning. Great stuff

  10. yea i second all the powerfull ideas in here...that seemed to help me get deeper sleep...and i do occasionally use valerian root(usually on like sunday to help me fall asleep after a weekend of bein up late and sleepin in) and while u can build tolerance to phenibut i found that its great to use a couple times a month to help give u refreshing sleep and recharge u

  11. an alternative to powerfull is bulk 1-carboxy-blahblahblah at Nutra.....it is one of the main actives in USPlabs discontinued REM and also powerfull.

  12. I've recently had good luck with ZMT. However the only sleep problem I have is my husband. He does not sleep at night so my body has re-wired itself to wake up constantly from him rolling around

    edited to add I don't have problems falling asleep, just staying that way.

    Didi they stop selling this, i cant find it on the site.

  14. Rhodiola and ZMA would be a great combo for sleep.

  15. I'm a big melatonin and Powerfull fanatic. Melatonin gets me to sleep and P-Full enhances the sleep I get. I've used ZMA with some success but I don't seem to get the same effect after 4-5 weeks of continuous use. Might also want to look into Chamomile, GABA, and 5-HTP

    Ambien puts you to sleep but it does not keep you asleep which is my problem. I've been contemplating Ambien CR which has an immediate sleep aid component and a controlled release sleep aid to keep you asleep. As for natural sleep aides I like melatonin,velarian and zma did nothing for me but everyone is different and responds differently. Zma,valerian and melatonin are all relatively cheap to try.

  18. Melatonin works for me. Sometimes I take it with two x dreams. X dream makes me wake up early in the morning for some reason and tends to give me nightmares of the emotional type.


  19. Thanks bro, i must have overlooked it. I thought that i looked under sleep aids. Guess not.

    The nightmares are fomr Melatonin. any dose over 2.5mg is shown to increase, hence why i take 6mg usually. Sometimes i wake up groggy sometimes not. X-Dreamis next in line for me.
    Sleep aid is really hit or miss casue the reasons you are not sleeping well. Emotional, chemical, food, etc. The best way to go is to make sure you take any of the previous on an EMPTY stomach 30minutes before you LAY DOWN. You can not be awake watching tv. Also, make sure when trying different things follow the rec. dose and adjust from there and in the same ways.
    I also use 5HTP but really doesnt help for sleep for me at least, more of a mid day to give me the more awake positive feeling.

  21. Phenibut works awesome for me. Ive never slept through a whole night my entire life and ill take about 2 grams and sleep till morning. But I dont get the hangover like some people.

  22. why was the rem product by usp discontinued? was it dangerous? i hope it wasnt i just finished a bottle of it like 2 months ago

    I don't know exactly why it was discontinued, but it was not dangerous. The main ingredient in REM is still being sold as one of the ingredients in USP's PowerFULL, as well as in bulk at nutraplanet.

  24. First off, buy the slow release melatonin formula. Kickstart your sleep with benadryl, and then the melatonin kicks in later on to keep you out. This is a good combo. If you must, take the kitchen sink approach and add gaba + zma + rhodiola + powerfull... etc etc.

  25. I read a book called Say Good Night To Insomnia by Gregg Jacobs. It really changed my thinking on sleep habits. Since reading it I havent used a sleep aid and rely on my body to induce sleep and not an outside source.

    I personally use Z-Force by Dymatize I sleep like baby,good stuff. I have very vivid dreams on it though.

  29. bump im horrible at getting to sleep.

  30. Ive tryed sleep stuff for about four years now.

    Gaba it works

    Phenibut is the best stuff Ive coem across. i sleep and I dont get up at all during the night.

    Melatonin works ok

    Zma-works ok fro what i remember. Its been a good three or more years SNAC brand is good

    5-htp works ok but dont take it with other serotin drugs or youll have somethign called serotin syndrome which is nasty. youll throw up and feel weird.

    I just do mediation and that works for me. It outs your mind in a slower tempy(alpha, delat, theta, beta) state of mind. calming oneself.
